colony research    

i was out in the field, working with 8th graders today; mr. atorino was the substitute teacher for the class. students received a collection of texts about their colony, and after reading through them, thought about the research questions in their project description and made notes in their notecatcher. after that, they met up with students who are researching the same colony, and they shared notes. finally, students were asked to write me some questions they haven't been able to answer about their colony so that i can adjust tomorrow's class to meet their needs. 

create first draft of colony brochure (due 12/19)
